It may seem like an unlikely place to be productive, but productivity is indeed possible in the new Google Chat and Spaces thanks to tight integration with Google Workspace tools like Calendar, Drive, Docs, Sheets, Slides, Meet, and Tasks. Google Spaces provides an easy way for people to engage in topic-based discussions, share knowledge and ideas, move projects forward and build communities and team culture in a dedicated space.
Google has announced that by the end of the second quarter of 2022, all Google Workspace users will see the new integrated view displayed in Gmail that shows Chat and Spaces on the left side navigation. Additionally, users will no longer have an option to switch to the old Gmail view. To prepare yourself for the change and to learn how you can boost your productivity using these tools, please watch this video about Productivity in Chat and Spaces.
